Best of Efate Flight

This helicopter tour is very popular and it’s not hard to understand why. You will fly you over some of the most stunning scenery you will encounter in Vanuatu, starting with Hideaway island and Mele Cascade waterfall. Then you head to beautiful Havannah Harbour where we often see turtles and dugongs swimming over the reef. Azure, turquoise and aquamarine waters surround the islands of Moso and Lelepa. Learn about the historic burial grounds on Eratoka Island, Vanuatu’s World Heritage site. Circling back to base we fly over Port Vila giving you a fabulous view of the town.

The flight lasts approximately 20 minutes and starts and finishes right on the seafront from our floating pontoon. Our glass-bottom boat will transfer you from the shore to the pontoon. Each passenger has a headset for communication and your pilot will give you a commentary throughout the flight.
